In her new book, We Want to Do More Than Survive, Professor Bettina L. Love draws on the history of the 19th century abolitionist movement to imagine radical new ways of teaching and organizing for social change, moving beyond what she calls the Educational Survival Complex, and towards Abolitionist Teaching. Dr. Love will be joined in discussion by Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz, associate professor of English education at Teachers College, and Genevieve DeBose Akinnagbe, a former New York City Public School teacher.
